The Cherry Creek Shopping Center announced the addition of five new stores this week: three aimed at women, one at those trying to get or stay fit and another that makes watches and bicycles.

Altar’d State, A Pea in the Pod, Odd Molly and Peloton are expected to open in the mall in coming weeks. The Detroit-based design brand Shinola opened its first Colorado location in Cherry Creek earlier this year, according to mall management.

“Our goal is to provide a differentiated retail experience that expressively connects consumers with new concepts and favorite brands,” said mall spokesman Dave Dixon in a statement.

Shinola makes watches, bicycles, leather goods, journals, jewelry and audio equipment. The store takes Charlie’s T-Shirts’ old spot. The T-shirt company recently relocated to a new space within the mall.

Later this spring, New York-based Peloton is expected to take over Allen Edmonds old space. The shoe store also recently relocated to a new space within the center. Peloton’s space in Cherry Creek will be the company’s first showroom in Colorado, offering customers the ability to test ride and learn more about its high-tech indoor cycling bike.

Altar’d State, A Pea in the Pod and Odd Molly are expected to open on the heels of Peloton. Tiffany & Co.’s relocation in the mall frees up space for Altar’d State, a women’s fashion brand. The maternity clothing store A Pea in the Pod is taking over a space that’s been vacant for some time.

“It’s important to note that we never rush to put tenants into spaces simply to fill them,” Dixon said. “We will only add tenants that complement the center’s overall merchandising mix like those we announced today.”

Cherry Creek announced the addition of Odd Molly as a Swedish-based fashion retailer whose “fashion lifestyle concept encourages women of all ages to feel and be their best selves.”

The store is replacing Lacoste, which left the mall earlier this year. It’s unclear why. Despite initial pushback to the mall’s new paid parking system, the only other store Cherry Creek said it knows to be closing is BeBe. Last month, the fashion brand announced that it would be closing all its stores nationwide, Dixon said.
